EDUC7430 Development in Mathematical Thinking (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
This course aims at enriching students’ knowledge and perspectives of mathematical thinking and how it impacts the learning and teaching of mathematics. Both (1) the deductive reasoning approach steeped in algebraic manipulations, which is also the currently dominant approach to mathematics, and (2) the geometric approach, which appeals to our intuitive reasoning and facilitates understanding, will be studied and compared in this course.
